Data Transfers

At times, your personal data may be transferred to service providers or systems in countries that may not offer a level of data protection equivalent to that in your country, including the United States. Where such transfers occur, Bioventus complies with the cross-border data transfer and export control laws of the countries in which it operates.

For personal data exports out of the European Union (“EU”) or European Economic Area (“EEA”), Bioventus enters into the European Commission’s Standard Contractual Clauses with the recipient to ensure compliance with the special requirements on transfers of personal data out of such countries. Where necessary, Bioventus will take appropriate supplementary measures to ensure an essentially equivalent level of data protection to that guaranteed in the EEA, in accordance with European Data Protection Board (“EDPB”) recommendations.

How We Secure Personal Data

We have reasonable and appropriate security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of any personal data we receive about you.

We require all our third-party service providers, by written contract, to implement appropriate security measures to protect your personal data consistent with our policies and any data security obligations.

Retention of Personal Data

Except as otherwise permitted or required by applicable law or regulation, we will retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfill the purpose for which it was collected or to comply with legal or regulatory requirements. We strive to retain your personal data no longer than is reasonably necessary to carry out the purposes listed in this Notice or as required by law.

If you are offered and accept employment with Bioventus, the personal data we collected during the application and recruitment process will become part of your employment record, and we may use it in connection with your employment consistent with our employee personal data policies.

Under some circumstances we may anonymize your personal data so that it can no longer be associated with you. We may use such anonymous and de-identified data for our legitimate business purpose.

If you are a resident of the European Economic Area, we will ask for your consent to store your application data for consideration of future job opportunities.
